A Maltese house entrance

After drawing some Maltese traditional townhouses, zoom in on the entrance door that is also picturesque with its molded wood panels that are painted the same color as the window frames.
Actually, this is a double-door entrance. I imagine that the second glass door is useful to insulate the house from heat in summer.
A Malta house may have a number or a name or both. Often there is a medallion engraved with the Madonna and Child or a saint to protect the house and its inhabitants.

With the damp, on many houses, the paint on the facade ends up chiping off, stones darken but the doorstep keeps its brightness as it is regularly polished.
